Booted Eagle (Aquila pennata) Águia-calçada

Of the two morphs we have here, the light is by far the most common and dark morphs can throw one when id-ing a far away bird. Booted Eagles are surprisingly small for such an aggressive Eagle, with a wingspan similar to that of a Common Buzzard. Although migratory there are always a few individuals that over-winter in Portugal. When stooping for prey or displaying for a mate, folds wings and fairly motors!
